Abstract:

Literature on internal convective heat transfer to gases and their binary mixtures, at heating rates which cause significant variation of the temperature-dependent transport properties, is reviewed to 1982. First, laminar flows, which are easiest to predict and most difficult to measure, are discussed. Then the problems of treating turbulent flows are considered, followed by the perplexing topic of laminarization - transition from a turbulent flow to a state which may be predicted as if there were no turbulent transport present. The review concludes with a few generalizations that seem pertinent.
